I know 2 couples that live close brought 2 cars each and both cars brought home the hardware. The weather was perfect about as good as it gets in these mountains. I didn't bring a Corvair this time therefore it didn't rain. If I bring one it always gets rained on. And the best in show at the convention was the best in show here, we miss Poppa J but his legacy continues.

That second purple wire is really wiggly. GGG. I'd probably have tried it on the one wire but Matt is always right and I have no experience there, relay is cheap, easy and will work great.

We're here, no vair this year. We waited for the storm to get mostly past before leaving still quite breezy on the way here. Staying at a bed and breakfast just down the road from Al. 55 degrees at 7.30.

That's an interesting collection there, especially the bus, it looks like a combo Parrothead and Ole Miss tailgater bus. The cars look good together too.

Ken said he was 70 miles NW of Panama City so that puts him on the good side of the storm, probably lost power for a bit. The storm was just downgraded to cat 1, that's good news, looks like it loosing strength fast and really moving fast so that lessens the damage because well it's not there so long. Al, I'm in the same union as the linemen, work for the power company, helps a little but yes

2 years ago we were under a mandatory evacuation order the same weekend of Vairs in the Valley, we were already geared to go, just packed up the house and left out went to the show, came home to down trees and no electricity, it's that time of year.

One of the best solutions I read was on a Hummer forum, make a pvc tank out of pipe and caps, install a valve stem in the tank and throw the sensors inside, seal it up, air it up and stash it in the car, as long as the air in the tank stays up no light. My method of throwing them in a drawer in the shop doesn't get rid of the light but they don't bother me there. My wife's 07 Hummer is the only

My nephew just posted on Facebook that it's almost 150 sustained winds now according to the hurricane hunter. He's air force so may have connections. Bad storm, close to strongest to ever hit USA.

Life will not be good for a while. No electricity for probably a week. If it goes in any east of you it's lots better but if it's west of you it's going to beat you up. Prayers for all affected, hopefully it falls apart soon but this one looks aggressive to me. After the storm traveling just a few miles west should get you to an area where you can find stores open. When Hugo hit us everything w

When selling a quick sell usually doesn't bring as much money and to get big money usually takes time. Most cars I've seen on eBay don't sell, bidders won't bid enough to make the seller happy or they bid but then won't pay. Bring a Trailer seems to sell better for nice cars. I've only sold a few classics but those I sold I did best putting them in car shows with a for sale sign on them. I put a

I've read some on hot rodding the LS motors. The flex fuel versions are designed to run E85 fuel are able to make more HP with only a tuning change than the others. Not from burning the E85 but because they were built with larger injectors and will spray more fuel into the engine. I did read an article, maybe YouTube, where they tested the same engine on a dyno to determine if E85 could make mor

It has to pass a hydro before it can be charged too. If they cost that much and there's a demand seems like it could be reproduced.

One of our VPs is a former Michelin executive and very highly educated and a car guy. I asked him about this. He said ozone is the biggest threat, bagging tires helps this, second is uv stored inside or covered helps this. He told me to inspect the tires carefully around the bead and the tread for cracks. Cracks let in water and water rusts the steel causing failure. He says no cracks go ahead

If you have time and can get it to Maggie Valley next weekend you'll have 20 mechanics wanting to look at it. They seem to be attracted to misbehaving Vairs and almost push each other away so they can touch it.

The Power Probe looks like a very useful tool. I also have a few 'cheap' meters that usually tell the story however I have a decent understanding of electricity and sometimes I find it useful to know exactly what's going on and that's when I'll go get the Fluke. For most people a Cat III or higher meter is not necessary but they can be a life saver for industrial workers that have access to mediu

It's been a long time since I bought one, didn't seem near as costly as they are now but sometimes I don't remember. Anyway I bought a new small starter from Clark's and installed on my 64 and haven't touched it again. If I were to need one today and I plan to keep the car indefinitely I'd buy another new one if Clark's still sells them, If I just want to drive the car a short while then I'd prob

I took a couple of pics with my phone, will load them as soon as I can do the resizing done. I actually spent part of my day trimming new carpet in my Blazer, the carpet trims fairly easily but this carpet has a half inch of padding bonded to it and that stuff is a pain to cut and eats razer blades.

The Power Probe looks interesting, never had heard of it before but I'm not an auto mechanic. I am an industrial electrician and I do like Fluke meters.

My 66 did that for years, hit the breaks and car dives left, drive it a bit and it's OK then. I installed discs on the front, happy now, it does occasionally slide a back tire now but doesn't try to steer me into the oncoming traffic. My 64 has always behaved perfectly with the drums, it has DOT 5, is that the reason?

I replaced the headliner in a 70 Monte Carlo, should be same as a Vair, it was pretty easy I thought.

Last ones I bought were from Sam's, work pretty decent, I bought the largest size, easier to put on and get off, could be a little tighter but they're fine, like Dave says, disposable.

I'll try and get you a pic of mine tomorrow, surely someone will beat me though. My tip is to use a super sharp razer knife, makes a much cleaner cut and if you mess up it'll hide really well, be careful with the fingers though.

It looks well done, Optima battery tells a little about the mechanic. I could be tempted to trade my 66 for it.
